Pinterest for your bucket list

Find someone online who also wants to skydive and maybe you’ll also discover 
true love.

A new social network has an interesting premise: connecting people around the world based on what they want to do before they die.

Called “My Last Wish,” the app encourages users to post wishes on a “Wish Wall” and then befriend others who might share their dreams.

“I believed in the possibility that there can be two persons in this world with the same hopes, dreams and wishes,” Kirtan Thaker, co-founder of the White Lotus Corporation, the group behind the app, told Mashable. “I was confident that if we create a app where this possibility can be turned into reality, people will love this concept and they will get a chance to make friends who are unknown but [have] just one thing in common, which is the last wish.”

When sharing a wish, users can also choose to attach their e-mail address or phone number so others that share their dream can connect with them. Tapping on a person’s contact information within the app will add their information to the contacts list in your phone. You can also receive push notifications when people add wishes to the wall.

A palm icon appears beside wishes, allowing you to “aLike” a wish you share, or “give a five” to that person to express your support for their wish and become friends.

While definitely a little morbid, and certainly out of the ordinary, the app already has a little bit of a following. Posted wishes range from things such as traveling the world to writing a book. Thaker says that the ultimate goal behind the app is to help people make friends that share similar hopes and dreams, or even help someone potentially find his or her soul mate.

White Lotus plans to add a location-based feature to the app in the future to help you find people located physically around you, and if the iOS version of the app does well the company plans to release an Android version as well.
